Frieth Hilly race route takes in areas such as location where George Clooney, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett recently filmed
5:20pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
A RACE through a Bucks countryside setting, which has become commonly used for film and television productions, will take place on Sunday.
Hundreds of runners will take on The Frieth Hilly.
It starts at 10am from Frieth Church of England School, which will be the beneficiary from the funds it raises.
Zara Brown, event spokesman, said: "The Frieth Hilly 10k is a fixture in the calendars of athletics clubs in the area but many people just run it for the challenge and the incredible scenery.
"Some fun runners come from as far away as Hong Kong to take in the beautiful countryside.
"The Hambleden valley is beloved of film-makers for the chocolate-box prettiness of its villages and only recently George Clooney, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett were filming their new movie."
Anyone can enter.
Organisers have opened up the 5k race this year to children aged over 11. The 10k is now open 15 year-olds and above.
A crèche with qualified, CRB-checked staff to enable couples to run together, is a new feature this year.
All funds raised from the Frieth Hilly help pay for the computer room at the school. Runners can turn up on the day or enter via www.friethhilly10k.co.uk or www.runnersworld.co.uk. For more information contact: Caroline Harper on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07979 758548
